Display your installed printers. See Task 2, "Displaying Installed Printers," for help with this step.
Select the printer you want to modify.
Click Select printing preferences.
Select a default orientation and default page order.
Printing preferences are settings such as the order pages are printed (beginning to end of document, or end to beginning), landscape (portrait or landscape), and paper source. If you always print a certain way, you can change these settings.
The options you see will vary depending on the type of printer you have.
Click the Paper/Quality tab.
Select a default paper source.
To change options for paper size, graphic quality, copy count, and others, click the Advanced tab. Make any changes and click OK.
When to Change Preferences
Changing the printer's preferences changes them for all documents you print on this printer. If you want to change settings for just one document, change the setting in that document instead.
